bits.Sub32() Function in Golang with Examples
• Last Updated : 28 Apr, 2020

The bits.Sub32() Function in Golang is used to find the difference of a, b and borrow, i.e. diff = a – b – borrow. Here the borrow must be 0 or 1; otherwise, the behavior is undefined. To access this function, one needs to imports the math/bits package in the program. The return value of the borrowOutput will be always 0 or 1 in any case.

Syntax:

```func Sub32(a, b, borrow uint32) (diff, borrowOut uint32)
```

Parameters: This function takes three parameters of uint32 type, i.e., a, b, and borrow. The value of borrow parameter is either 1 or 0.

Return Value: This function return two values of uint32 type, i.e., diff and borrowOut. Here diff contains the result of a – b – borrow and borrowOut is either 1 or 0.

Example 1:

 `// Golang program to illustrate bits.Sub32() Function``package main`` ` `import (``    ``"fmt"``    ``"math/bits"``)`` ` `// Main function``func main() {`` ` `    ``// Finding diff and borrowOu``    ``// of the specified numbers``    ``// Using Sub32() function``    ``nvalue_1, borrowOut := bits.Sub32(13, 8, 1)``    ``fmt.Println(``"Diff:"``, nvalue_1)``    ``fmt.Println(``"BorrowOut :"``, borrowOut)`` ` `}`

Output:

```Diff: 4
BorrowOut : 0
```

Example 2: Here, you can see that the result is not as excepted as we have taken the value of borrow as 3. So if we are taking borrow input other than 1 and 0 then the behavior will be undefined.

 `// Golang program to illustrate bits.Sub32() Function``package main`` ` `import (``    ``"fmt"``    ``"math/bits"``)`` ` `// Main function``func main() {`` ` `    ``// Finding diff and borrowOut``    ``// of the specified numbers``    ``// Using Sub32() function`` ` `    ``var a, b, borrow uint32 = 4, 15, 3``    ``Diff, borrowOut := bits.Sub32(a, b, borrow)``    ``fmt.Println(``"Number 1:"``, a)``    ``fmt.Println(``"Number 2:"``, b)``    ``fmt.Println(``"Borrow :"``, borrow)``    ``fmt.Println(``"Diff:"``, Diff)``    ``fmt.Println(``"BorrowOut :"``, borrowOut)`` ` `}`

Output:

```Number 1: 4
Number 2: 15
Borrow : 3
Diff: 4294967282
BorrowOut : 1
```
